  • Newton Dynamics vs Bullet Physics for Game Engine?

    Someone I know is fond of using the term 'bus factor' when discussing libraries like these, as in "how many people need to get killed by a bus in order for the project to die?" Both Newton and Bullet have a bus factor of 1, meaning 1 particular guy needs to get hit and the lion's share of commit contributions comes to an end, although Bullet bus factor is probably slightly higher than Newton.
